Research interests

Mary has been a member of the Department of Management since 2000 and prior to that completed her PhD (in literary studies) and taught at the University of Reading.

Her research is focused on developing an ethico-politics of organization that encompasses gender and the corporeal body. This work is informed by post-structuralist feminisms and in particular that of Helene Cixous, Julia Kristeva and Judith Butler. Currently, she is working on ecofeminist/corporeal responses to organizational environmentalism. Her edited collection, Contemporary Perspectives on Ecofeminism, published by Routledge in 2015, draws together scholarly approaches from a number of disciplines to explore the contribution of ecofeminist approaches to resolving ecological problems. She is also working with artists and creative writers as a way of fostering affective re-engagements with nature. Previous work has included the ethico-political dimensions of leadership and entrepreneurship.
